They say you can tell a lot about a couple from their body language. The mirroring stances, interlocked fingers, and feet in alignment to one another’s aura let you know just how compatible they are. Indeed, who you take with you to an event is just as important as what you wear, which is why we’re looking forward to the upcoming red-carpet season in Hollywood.
In honor of this special time of year, we’re celebrating the power couples who not only exemplify what it means to be in harmony with your significant other, whether on the world stage or the sidewalk, but also manage to synchronize sartorially every time. And while it’s not always the case, we’d like to believe that couples who style together stay together because, when love and taste align, well that’s simply simpatico.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
These two are proof that opposites attract. She’s the bombshell, he’s the stoic action star, and – together – they make style magic. She rocks form-fitting designer dresses like a pro, and he’s always dapper in darker tones. Meanwhile, we’re in love.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Here’s an example of two cultures coming together in an unexpected yet merry union. Sure, they might have a few differences on paper, but their recent engagement just makes sense IRL. His clean, all-American aesthetic pairs with her glamorous movie-star spirit, giving us a taste of what’s to come once they tie the knot – nothing but butterflies here.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
An American actress marrying a British Royal – it’s like something out of a fairytale. This is the couple we never knew we wanted, but boy, are we glad they came together! In the short amount of time that they’ve been married, the two have managed to merge their styles – her undone hair and preference for neutrals against his skinny ties and bespoke suits – effortlessly. Now, as a royal, the Duchess of Sussex might have some specific style rules to follow, but we know we can still count on her to delight us with her own spin on things.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Style, good looks, and a sense of humor – what don’t these two possess? Real-life Barbie and Ken are the epitome of marital bliss, and their style is in a league of its own. We can always count on her to bring it, especially when her modern femininity perfectly complements his fitted suits.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Singers and models have often been paired together, but there’s no coupling quite like this one. He lets her shine, while she brings out his fun side in their witty online banter. What we truly adore about this duo is that they’re not afraid to do a throwback and reference classic styles or mix it up with an entirely contemporary ensemble. What we can say is that we’re suckers for a couple that takes dressing seriously – but not too much.
Victoria and David Beckham
It’s hard to find a couple where both people are style icons in their own right, but the Beckhams not only shine individually, but also set trends together. Veterans in the fashion game with nearly 20 years of marriage under their belt, these two personified #couplegoals before it was even a thing. From the days of their matching haircuts with blond highlights to the time they both sported full leather suits, we’ve loved seeing their style evolve. Now, they’re more understated, sporting sleek silhouettes and refined tones that make the cut every time.
Amal and George Clooney
We’ve been blessed with countless red-carpet looks that make our hearts skip a beat since these two met. One half of the couple is a human rights lawyer, and the other half is known for his comedic flare. She doesn’t shy away from color, while he favors dark and sombre tones. Together, this is a match made in style heaven.
